Re: A red flower called beast...

I like the convex and concave edges it gives us a lot to explore visualy and as there is no subject matter ( well I know there is ie it's a flower) but if it had not title and due to it being abstract subject matter is furthest from our minds and eye so we get to enjoy and explore the concave/convex and the ambiguity of solid tangible matter and space becomes apparent so I like this for that reason .Also I think there is a play of the flat paper (due to the contained units)vs depth of solid object (that concave edges with contained units make us feel see solid matter or figure on ground )meaning your units are contained as in there are no broken lines ..I like the ambiguity of it all it's all there in one thing and it works works for me

Re: A red flower called beast...

if you're going to hang it unframed imo the edges should be painted.

WOW nice description and way to see it... It really warms

I did not have any idea of what I was going to paint, except for the colors... We I finished I thought it looked a little like a abstract flower or a beast, or maybe both... So thatīs why I gave it that name, and maybe thatīs wrong

Re: A red flower called beast...

No matter about a title doesn't matter either way I think personaly.Was meaning that this is what is great in general about abstract art ie when we look at it we get to go beyond material "subject matter" and can start to enjoy instead tensions or space in a different way other than what we have been taught (there are no barriers)ie taught practices of perspective ..it takes us beyond . Lots to enjoy in terms of figure and ground .

Re: A red flower called beast...

Hi Guys,

I see what you mean, and I love your kind words... Itīs just me, I am a perfectionist, and thatīs not the best thing when you do abstract art (-:

I have to loosen up, and throw away some of my negative thoughts about the final piece.

About the edges, I just love that they stand out half-finished, even though they come without a frame.

Att: Birdhs - Hahaha just great ! (-;

Re: A red flower called beast...

I am curious as to what led you to this style? What are your influences as such..I see what birdhs meant now (say no more);

Re: A red flower called beast...

Actually I had no clue what I wanted to paint, when I stood in front of the canvas, of my first ever painting in september 2019... This red painting is number 4, and is the same style as the others... I thought I was going to paint with the style of Gerhard Richter or Takesada Matsutani, but I did/do not have the space to lay down the canvas, because of the size... I really only like large paintings... So maybe when the weather is great again in Denmark, and I can get outside, I will try some other style with a squeegee... But right now I like this style very much with the use of a small spartel... So I will definitely do more of these (-:

I really really like it! Would hang it horizontal probably. It has a starkness that is very appealing and yet I sense a vulnerability too.
